“We chose api.video for its intuitive console, usage-based pricing, and ability to support Adaptive Bitrate Streaming. Our previous vendor, Wistia, failed to support Adaptive Bitrate Streaming on mobile devices. The pricing is favorable to us as our costs decrease when the usages are high. I would recommend api.video to anyone looking to add videos to their application.”
